Fiddling While It Burns


While studying for my Bachelor of Journalism, I’ll be focusing on conflict, strategic studies and national security as much as possible, and so from time to time will write essays relevant to Fiddling While It Burns. Once they’ve been safely assessed, I’ll put them up on the site. Essays are too long for the blog format, and don’t have enough pretty pictures to keep them engaging, so they’ll be posted as separate pages under the ‘Essays’ heading. Feedback is always welcome, thanks for reading.
